What the club says: Founded in 1903 and situated about two miles north east of Ballymena, on the fringes of the "Britain in Bloom" award-winning village of Broughshane, sits Ballymena Golf Club. The entire course is dominated by Slemish Mountain, which is world renowned due to its association with Ireland's patron saint, Patrick, and offers a superb scenic backdrop to enhance your round.

Let's start with the good points. The greens are excellent but very flat. The clubhouse and facilities are excellent with good proshop too. I was welcomed in the proshop by an apologetic man who charged £18 for a round £3 more than Galgorm(home of the Northern Ireland open) on golf now. I was welcomed half way done the 1st with the almighty stink of the chicken/Turkey farm next door. That followed me around the course. The course itself is flat and unimaginative, which is fine if you want to refine your yardage, if the holes weren't marked in meters that is....the tees hadn't been cut all week and there was grass behind my ball on striking...tut tut!
This course doesn't want to attract visitors (God knows why) with the price of green fees. It can survive on its membership which is understandably cheap. If you're a visitor to North Antrim do not golf here. We are spoiled for courses with reasonable green fees(golf now) I.e. Gracehill, Galgorm, ballyclare to name just three.
